It's a matcha like no other. I definitely can taste the umami feature after swishing it around in my mouth. It's a bit bitter upon brewing in hot water (which is normal) and I start tasting the caramel feature whenever I make a latte version and it also doesn't taste as bitter (which is normal). Upon drinking it, I definitely feel the benefits of it working. It boost my mood to 110%, I feel very happy for no reason (I'm not complaining), I also feel more relaxed and I get enough energy for the rest of my day. It's a matcha I cannot get enough of. I'm absolutely in love with it.
I was impressed with matsu save for the color, so my expectations for this one are definitely higher. Gorgeous color! Just what I was hoping. That luscious emerald/jade green. Slightly chocolatey aroma. Very soft to the touch. Likewise with the liquid, a serene green appearance. As I poured in more water a unique marine aroma drifted up to my nose. Wish I could explain it but it was gone so quickly. Silky mouth feel. That slightly marine flavor came back again; it's almost fishy in flavor but it comes and goes so quickly. Do not worry though as strange as it is I've only had the sensation a few times in the many sips I've taken. Maybe it's me? Regardless, if you like umami this has a wonderful umami undertone to it. Slightly grassy, no astringency.
The flavour, the colour and the smell were so mesmerising and on point that I ordered another one and received it yesterday. Need I say more?
Long waited gift for myself. Thank you for this amazing product. In love with brewing matcha and especially the cup, from which I enjoy my matcha
So I've been using my glass katakuchi bowl for the last couple of weeks, and I have to say it is probably one of the best purchases I have ever made. The bowl itself is incredibly lightweight yet feels extremely sturdy, when whisking matcha the whisk just glides over the glass without any resistance (I noticed my previous stone chawan had some resistance which would wear the whisk down eventually) and the fact that it's made of pure glass means I can actually see the colour of the matcha while I'm brewing it. I also absolutely love the way they've added the handhold around the middle - it makes it incredibly easy to pour the matcha one-handed into a smaller cup for drinking, and the whole bowl just looks absolutely beautiful.
All in all, I don't think I have ever seen such a beautiful chawan before - it's definitely made brewing matcha a lot easier and I'd recommend it to any and all matcha enthusiasts! :)
PERFECTION is the one word that best describes my experience with Matchaelogist! Will defo come back for more...sooon! ;)
PS: In the picture, I made matcha tiramisu with Meiko Matcha. YUM!
Just by using a tiny amount of matcha powder, it empowers the drink so much. I use it for my matcha drinks that include shots of espresso; some times when I put too much matcha powder it becomes too overpowering, but if you eventually figure out the right amount, you'll be more likely to drink at home that go out. The powder also blends extremely well when using a whisk. Will continue to buy this range as it is very worth it.
Also suitable for non dairy matcha lattes.
at bellissimo Venice California we proud to work with a company who take the green tea Matcha to the next level its not only the highest quality it's the taste and the aroma. way to go my Japanese friend . good customer service !
I have just cooked my Super Matcha Cheese Cake... and it is so perfect... that I need to make another !
I have tried all three premium matcha teas . Hands down Meiko has the smoothest yet most complex flavours. And Meiko is (decadent yet) yet divine in desserts( image cocoa butter matcha tartelettes) Alas, it has increased 2x this year in the kilo price, so if looking to stay within budget then I recommend Midori .Whilst less complex ,it has a wonderful slightly alkaline flavour that tickles the back of the throat and makes me smile. Meiko is wonderful tea as are all three( rhyme unintended) :-)
Have been purchasing this grade for a few months now. I use it in my matcha latte every morning. Totally recommended!
This is the first time that I decided to purchase the 100g size of Meiko because I was reluctant whether I will finish them all. Ended up finishing this tin in less than 3 weeks! Great product as always. Will order more for sure!
We’ve been using Midori for a year now at our cafe in San Francisco Bay Area. Excellent quality, really potent and smooth to use as a latte base, stand-alone or matcha based products. Very well received by our customers!
This Chasen is efficent and beautifully made. I have mine from few months now and looks still perfect. I can tell the quality is above many others had in the past. Is also very elegant to display in our kitchen!
I love this Matcha for its wonderful flavor and deep green color. I’ve shared it with many friends all who love it and are looking to purchase it for themselves. I will continue to purchase this high quality matcha. I’ve tried many others and they simply don’t compare.
If you are a keen matcha drinker this will really add another level to your matcha ritual :) I've struggled in the past when making matcha for several dinner guests, or participants in one of my cooking workshops (where I serve matcha as a welcome drink). Previously, I had to make each serving individually which is of course lovely, but very time consuming and we can't enjoy the matcha all together! With the Katakuchi serving bowl I can whisk up enough matcha for a few people at a time, and everyone gets to enjoy the bright green colour through the glass. The large whisk works perfectly here and as it is glass the brush won't wear out as fast as it does with a ceramic bowl. A little pricey but well worth it if you are a matcha enthusiast, and you are getting a top notch quality item.
Authentic, gorgeous quality flavour for a really affordable price – this is my to-go everyday matcha! Perfect for anything mixed as it can handle a little sweetness added eg lattes, ice creams.
I thought the bowl was so convenient because it has more space to be able to make the matcha. Also, the pouring was good as well.
We absolutely love this bowl.
I'm not an expert at making matcha and this serving bowl allowed me to make the perfect matcha for 2! The fact that is large and made of glass ( super smooth) help dissolve the matcha powder properly and is so so beautiful and elegant for serving!
Me ha gustado mucho su suavidad y su dulzura. Está especialmente bueno con leche. Sin duda repetiré.
Elegant! Only down side is I wish there is a smaller version for when I’m serving just myself! It’s very elegant and I want to use it everyday! I also got a cup to go with it! Will definitely get more! 🙏🏻🦜🍵🤟🏻❣️
